Woebot with a great post on Todd Terry. One of the records that I always revisit when I’m going through tumultuous times (times such as these) (the record was found, of course, in a 99-cent bin in Brooklyn) is “The Circus/Weekend” [Fresh, 1989]. Probably because Todd Terry’s stuff sounds so tumultuous. Sometimes the modern ‘minimal’ sounds can feel like so many flecks of misty rain; this stuff hits you like water blasting from a fire hydrant. Powerfully refreshing. A psychedelic jumble of ideas, strikingly intuitive and non-intuitive at the same time.
